Is it possible to change the title bar background and the font style on default template?



Is there any way to change the default top link /title bar picture and the fonts of the title without breaking anything in the layout/structure?

I have changed the theme to Obsedian and I would also like to change the picture of the title bar of this theme and also the font/style of the title, top link bar, menus..etc. Is there a way to do this?

Please note: I am using WSS 3.0 and I am not the Administrator of the sharepoint. I am only the site admin of some sites on this sharepoint. I can do some basic customization using SPD.

Basically, what I am trying to do is that I want to set up a sharepoint site, however I want to make it NOT look like a sharepoint site.Well I know this is possible, but for my case it might be just partially possible due to the limitation that I am not the Site collection admin and hence I do not have direct access to the server itself.

What I want is to hide most of the sharepoint links/menus/bars, etc and use my own buttons/hyperlinks etc .. for user to navigate on the sites.

Thanks in advance for your help/advices.

Coloring sql reporting services report depending on the change of value of a certain field

Hey guys, I have an SSRS report that looks something like this: Column1 Column2 Row1 2 A Row2 2 B Row3 2 C Row4 6 A Row5 11 E How can I color the rows with the same value in Column1 with the same color? for example Row1 to Row3 would have one color, Row4 would have a different color, then I'd go back to Row1's color for Row5? note: I don't know in advance the numbers returned in Column1. I query for them and then I hide them from the user so Column1 shouldn't show on the report, but I want to use it for the coloring only.

Saving and restoring WPF Window size and position

I have a WPF window.  I want to do a very common thing:  Save the window size and position on close and restore them on open. I tried a C# approach and a XAML approach. I prefer the XAML but I'l take advise on either.  Here's the XAML I've tried: Title ="PVIEW" ResizeMode="CanMinimize" BorderThickness="0" WindowStartupLocation="CenterScreen" WindowStyle="SingleBorderWindow" HorizontalContentAlignment="Stretch" VerticalContentAlignment="Stretch" Loaded="Window_Loaded" Closing="Window_Closing" Closed="Window_Closed" SizeChanged="Window_SizeChanged" Height="{Binding Source={x:Static self:Properties.Settings.Default}, Path=LastWindowHeight, Mode=TwoWay}" Width="{Binding Source={x:Static self:Properties.Settings.Default}, Path=LastWindowWidth, Mode=TwoWay}" Top ="{Binding Source={x:Static self:Properties.Settings.Default}, Path=LastWindowTop, Mode=TwoWay}" Left ="{Binding Source={x:Static self:Properties.Settings.Default}, Path=LastWindowLeft, Mode=TwoWay}"> ... In Settings, I also created four entries, (all doubles) with the same names as the Path names above with all their values set to 0. Then I added this line to Window_Closing:  "Properties . Settings . Default.Save(

Title for a Reporting Services booth at a dog & pony show

For the foreigners.. dog & pony show is not literal! My company is having an IT Expo and I'm doing a booth demoing reporting services to many folks who may not have seen it before within the company.  I've got a decent solution to demo that is in production which includes drilldown reports, graphs, use of parent/child expanding sections, etc. So far my best idea is Reporting Services It's my data and I want it now! Pretty lame, I know. Surely one of you can do better!  Thanks.. Ken

"max-template-document-size" change not working as expected

Hi There I have a 2 node MOSS 2007 deployment hosting 5 webapps. The one web app I am having a problem with is a customised solution from a 3rd party. The product users need to save sites as templates, to which they get an error saying that the template is too large. I have run the max-template-document-size stsadm command and increased the value from 5mb to 50mb but it seems the change is not taking effect. The error page says the limit is still 5mb. When I use stsadm getproperty it shows that the value has in fact increased. I have made sure that I am doing this on the correct webapp. The save as template operation works if I do not select the "save content" option. The sites have no content so the cannot be greater than 50mb. Am I missing something extremely obvious?

Adding a Callback to the Window Title Property

Hi all-   I have a quick question.  I have a customized window, based on the Window object.  Is there a way to create a Callback handler on the Title Property, so that I can basically capture and perform my own customized actions when the Title property is changed?  I have no problems adding custom dependency properties (as below), but adding a callback to an existing property from the base class is where I am a little lost and need guidance.   Thanks for any help. Chris   public class WindowBase : Window { // Several Dependency Properties exist as below, with callbacks which trigger on the change of the property // The trick is to find a way to add a callback to the Title property of Window public string Caption { get { return (string)GetValue(CaptionProperty); } set { SetValue(CaptionProperty, value); } } public static readonly DependencyProperty CaptionProperty = DependencyProperty.Register("Caption", typeof(string), typeof(WindowBase), new PropertyMetadata(OnCaptionChanged));

Windows.Forms.Label size change issue



In a Windows Forms application developed with VB2008 Express, Label controls change size the first time the .Text property is updated.


On a Windows XP Pro SP3 system where the app was developed the labels retain the size set at design time.  On other systems, one also Windows XP, one Windows 7, labels shrink (all to the same size independent of content) the first time their .Text property is updated.  Labels that do not have their .Text property updated retain their design size.

Additional information:

The labels all occur within a FixedPanel of a SplitContainer.
Salient properties for the Label controls:
Anchor: Top, Left
AutoSize: False
BorderStyle: FixedSingle
Dock: None
Enabled: True
FlatStyle: Standard
Image: None
Locked: False
Margin: 0,0,0,0

Dynamic change home link in reporting services

I have a site setup to use forms authentication, when a user logs in I want it to go to a specific folder for that user. I am able to do this by changing where the site gets redirected to by using appending ?ItemPath=/FolderName at the end of the path. There is a link that says home in the upper part of the page, I would like this to also reflect the default folder for this user. Is it possible to change this? I do not want to hide it in the CSS as it makes navigation a little more difficult as the user will have the ability to create separate folders inside of the folder. I am using SQL 2008 r2.
